Two cousins hailing from Haryana were arrested for allegedly cheating showroom owners across malls and posh markets in south Delhi by using blocked credit cards registered in the names of other people to make expensive purchases, police said.

Police identified the duo as Vicky Arora (28) and Vikas (25) — both residents of Faridabad.

“We nabbed them following investigations into a complaint filed by Ritesh Chauhan, a Retail Operation Manager at the Shoppers’ Stop Showroom located in the Select Citywalk Mall in Saket,” said a senior police officer on condition of anonymity.

Police said that Chauhan had claimed that two customers carrying American Express credit cards registered in the names of Mahender Ram and Pushpa Rani had visited their store and purchased goods worth Rs 2.77 lakh.
